Partnerships

The ECA works in collaboration with a number of charitable organisations and various agencies in Enfield to deliver services and cultural events to the local community. In addition, we also work with organisations outside of the Borough who have similar aims and objectives.

The Council of Leaders within the Black Community (The COL)

The ECA is a member of The COL which is a virtual group comprised of leaders of collaborating organisations serving the Black community. The vision of the COL is to work towards the development of a new Black community which is aspirational, learning, compassionate and self-reliant. A Leadership Conference is held every year for members to report on their progress in meeting the COL's core priority for the previous year and to choose which priority to address for the year ahead.

Reach Society

The ECA works with Reach Society to raise the aspirations of our young people by holding Careers events at primary and secondary schools in Enfield. Reach Society is a social enterprise that encourages, motivates and inspires black boys and young Black men to realise their potential and make viable transitions into adult life. Reach Society is a social enterprise that encourages, motivates, and inspires black boys and young Black men to discover their potential by taking the actions early that will lead to the formation of habits that are essential for the development of robust characters.

Become a Volunteer

We are planning to develop a register of people to act as befrienders to the BME elderly in the Borough. Volunteers will be required to visit isolated elderly BME people in their homes to encourage and support them for 1/2 hours per week.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The corona virus has hit us all unexpectedly and has affected everything that we do. It has caused us to change our everyday habits and has led to isolation particularly for the elderly and vulnerable. We are working with StreetWatch Edmonton on a joint project called Together Our Community Survives (TOCS) to identify and deliver food to BAME and other ethnic groups. We are only accepting registration for volunteers at the moment. No new elders can be accommodated unless we have more volunteers. To volunteer an hour of your time, please contact Dionne on 07915 919524.
